    Use customer dropedown selection for preselect in another dropdown

    Asked by raminal69 on February 04, 2016 at 12:03 PM

    There are 5 identical dropdown filelds using countries as selecting agents.

    Is it possible simutaneously select the same country from the all 5 dropdown  fields?

     Generally say, how prepopulate dropdown /checkbox fields according to earlier selection in another dropdown/checkbox?

    You can achieve that with conditional logic update/calculate field option. 

    You would need to use regular dropdown field. You would need to set your condition like this.

    You would also need to set field values to be text,(A-Z).

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/60345773238964 

    Feel free to clone it.

    Same can be done with check box fields as well. 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
